GERMANY - Castles
All stamps were printed in Typography (in Michel Bdr = Buchdruck)
But 6 stamps (10, 30, 50, 60, 80 and 300pf) were also printed in Letterset - Dry Offset (in Michel Ldr)

Left : Typography (Bdr)
Right : Letterset - Dry Offset (Ldr)



Zoom at 2400dpi :
Above : Typography (Bdr)
Below : Letterset - Dry Offset (Ldr)



See the difference : Typography printing is more irregular, ink looks less smooth than the Letterset printing

Thanks for showing the different print methods of the German castles.

I believe though that the right term as used in Michel is letterset.

Letterpress is just another name for typography in English which means in German Buchdruck ; whereas Letterset is as you state an offset type of printing.

Lithograving, you are right!. It is Letterset and not Letterpress (I edited the previous message to correct it).

Letterset or Dry-Offset is typography with an intermediate cylinder (rubber) like in Offset-Litho.
In others words it is a kind of indirect typography.

That illustration explains the difference between letterset and offset quite well jorgesurcl.

I've checked my mint and used castles but can't find any printed in letterset which as per Michel were first printed that way in 1987.
